"Where This Blogger Creates" 2 Special Places - "Rosie Posie Cottage" & A Mini Room That Is My Art Studio 2



Hello!... Welcome! Come on in and see the place "Where I Hide & Create".... it has a little magic in it and let's you dREaM of all the things would like to create & bee... It's a place where I can say "hErE i bEe ME" ... I know that some of you don't even have one room to call your own to create, but I know you must have an area that is special so that your creativity can flow and something beeautiful is created... I can say, I am Blessed to have two spots to let the creativity juices flow, plus I must admit I carry my creativity to two other rooms in my tiny cottage that I live in ~the kitchen & the living room... the extension of my creativity doesn't stop there I love creating little groupings, scenes, unusual settings, love color and much much more...

Let me stop carrying on, and show you around these special places of mine... I hope you enJOY what you see and I hope that you come back and visit me whenever you want... my door is always open and there's usually a pot of coffee on or the tea kettle is boiling some water for a grand cup of tea.  Please don't bee shy leave a comment for me and I will make it a point to stop and say "HI"..

Let's beegin... my teenie tiny mini art cottage is called "rOSiE pOsIE cOTtage...it's a tiny little spot in my mini yard... Not only it is my art cottage but it 1/4 of a storage area... come on in and take a look around...


I made it a spot, where not only can I create but I can read, rest & pray... I made a little sitting area with a fake (but magical to me) fire place and a shelf aka mantel over it... the shelf will actually bee holding a variety of ribbons.. I made it out of two brackets that hold the shelf in place but has holes for the pole that will soon hold ribbons... 

Above the mantel is a mirror that brings in more light for me...because you see the shed still doesn't have electricity or windows... I have a heavy duty lime green extension cord that brings much needed power for all the twinkle lights, hot glue gun, heat gun, lamps and much more... I love the look of the twinkle lights it reminds me of the lightening bugs outside...
 
As you can see I have 9 very large drawers that hold A LOT of my supplies, plus I have added different out of the ordinary storage holders (the pink kitchen bin, the stack of boxes, the space with curtains on it is to store larger items and my stool which needs a make over & more) there are shelves and other things here and there... Its great to have a variety of containers to hold those "I don't know where this should go item"... love my vintage pencil sharper that was left from the previous owners and all my vintage garden or children's books (there are a lot more books in my art room inside) a bulletin board that needs inspirational pics and quotes on it...yes a PINK tree which I just love... and more knic knacs around the space... and yes that is a mannequin in the corner with a crown surround by things with bEes I have a liking for bEes...so take a look around and we will continue the tour in the art room.  Hope you're enjoying what you see so far...



















The "heART room" I'm going to go through quick... it's a kaleidoscope of all things I love... I love being surrounded by colors, vintage children books & drawings, dolls, LARGE bulletin (made by me from a very large frame spray painted white with cork squares added in the inside of the frame...twinkle lights glare and yes a white Christmas tree too (I'm a firm beeliever that you should carry a piece of Christmas Spirit in your heART all year long)...bookshelves and another fireplace mantel but this time its the real thing... many different colors, shapes and sizes of furniture and containers to hold all... well I must say this is a lot to take in....  I hope that you enJOY my little spaces to CREATE and I can't wait to come and see your special spaces too~











Have a honey of a day ~
May sweet things come your way!

Love,
Marlene
